The Cyclone's Path is Marked
by Death and' Destruction.
Over Twenty Towns and Villages

Atlanta, Ga., Oct, 1, A special
from Jacksonville, Flo., to tho Consti
Tho West Indian hurrlcano which
entered Florida at Cedar Keys Tuesday
morning; and swept through the south
ern part in a northeasterly direction
left death and destruction In its path.
Owing; to tho prostration of tele
graph wires and tho delay of trains,
duo to washouts, only meager reports
havo been received, and yet, meager as
ithoso reports aro, thay show that over
20 towns and villages have been wreck
ed and that 40 or CO persons havo beon
'killed, whllo probably tbrlce as many
more received wounds more or less ser
ious. About 4 o'clock in tho morning the
hurricane, which had been churning
tho gulf, left tho water and swooped
down upon Cedar Keys, a town of
1,500 inhabitants, about ono hundred
miles southeast of Jacksonville.
Thirty-six hours havo elapsed since
the storm struck Cedar Keys, but not
one word has beon received directly
from that placo as to tho damage done
or tho number of lives lost. No trains
have been ablo to reach thoro because
tho tracks aro covered with heavy tim
ber. Tho only roport from Cedar Keys
comes by "way of Gainesville, 50 miles
northeast of tho gulf town, and Is to
tho effect that Cedar Keys has been
swept away and many persons killed
and wounded. This report reached
Gaincsvlllo by courier from Williston,
which is SO miles north of, Cedar Keys
Tho report is hardly exaggerated, as
'Cedar Keys was directly In tho patt
,of the hurrlcano and received its
full force as it leaped raging from the
After demolishing Cedar Keys the
storm, moving in a southeasterly diroc
tlon, struck Williston, a village of 40C
inhabitants. At that place 11 houses
were wreckod, qne person killed and
15 wounded, some, It is feared fatally.
Near Williston Is a largo turpentine
farm on which many state convicts are
employed. Twenty of these convicts
were huddled in a cabin, across which
tho storm blew, a groat troc, crushing
six of the inmates.

Buulinqton, la., Oat. 1. Tho semi

glory.' After three weeks of rain the sun
shone forth Wednesday, and all night
long street sweepeis and gangs of men

The muhic was furnished by tho Iowa
State band, o.' World's fair fame. At

rang and whistles blew, and again
at noon for ton minutes tho noise was
repeated. The uproar was deafening:
Tho parado was tho grandest uvor seen,
here. It started at 11 a. m., and was1
witnessed by 25,000 people. Gov.

rode near the head of the column fol

Iowa national guard headed tho col
umn. Brass bands from all over
tho states were in line. Floats
representing the progress of Iowa
from 1640 to 18UC wero nlsc
in line. A band of forty full-blooded
Tama Indians followed tho troops.
Two'cowboys dashed after the Indians
and ran for 15 minutes through the
dense crowd before they wero cap
Great excitement prevailed and nar

five policemen ten minutes to pull the
crazed cow-punchers from their horses
and a hand-to-hand fight with whips

festivities Thursday morning and had

pulled over his ears, was found sitting
in the lap of Vlco President Stevenson.

Tommy lildd Was Deliberately Murdered
by Sovcn-Year.Old Carolyn Mcllhenny.
Woosteii, O., Oct 1. Under the ver
diet of Coroner A. E. Stepflcld, seven-year-old
Carolyn Mcllhenny, of Dal
ton, is charged with deliberate mur
der. Tho Mcllhenny boy on Sunday
morning had a quarrel with Tommy
Kidd, tho 14-year-old son of W. K. Kldd,
of Cleveland, O. Ihe Kidd boy was a
paralytic and almost helpless. He
was an invalid from childhood, suf
fering from a disease known as
"tho rickets," which has caused his
head to swell to almost twice its
natural size. He had been left in caro
of Mcllhenny's mother by his parents,.
Young Mcllhenny first claimed that
they had been plnying rabbit, but on
Sunday morning confessed that he
had loaded a shotgun and fired at tho
Kidd bo3', tea-ing off the whole top of
his head, killing him almost instantly.
Whether or not the boy can be tried for
murder is a question that the author
itirs here have not been ablo to decide,
Tho verdict of Coroner Stepflcld is as
follows! "After making a, thorough ex
amination of witnesses and the body
of the deceased, und carefully question
ing beveu-year-o!d Carolyn Mcllhency,
I do find that the invalid, Thos. Kidd,
aged 14 years, met his death by be
ing shot in the head by seven-year-old
Carolyn Mcllhenny, who deliber
ately loaded a double-barreled shotgun
for tho purpose of shooting said Thos.
Kidd. I am also constrained to be
lieve that this youthful murder would
never have been committed had tho
murderous youth been blessed with
parental homo training by those whoso
duty it was to guldo his little footstops
away from the little crimes as they
havo been wont to go during tho years
of his childhood."
